Seventeen-year-old scores only goal at Middlesbrough as Division Two play-offs approach

Wolverhampton Wanderers boosted their hopes of finishing second in Division Two and promotion with a 1-0 victory at Middlesbrough.

Having confirmed their play-off place with a win over Norwich City in their previous outing, 17-year-old Niall Ennis scored the only goal at Rockliffe Park, pouncing on an underhit Dael Fry backpass after 81 minutes. 

The win lifts Wolves four points clear in second. Should they finish there they will have home advantage for the play-off semi-final match, and for the final if they progress.

Only fourth-placed Fulham, who play at Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday, can catch them.

Boro stay 10th, out of the promotion picture, after only a second defeat in five matches.
